The Top Ten

Achilles Last Stand
Second best Led Zeppelin song only to Stairway to Heaven of course, this song is great. Easily most underrated. "the mighty arms of Atlas hold the heavens from the earth, " classic.


It was really close in my opinion between this and ten years gone. The latter nails the guitar solo. Achilles last stand really takes you on a journey. It has so many awesome quality the guitar and drum riffs are the beginning of metal music (yes I know iron maiden came out a few months prior to the release of this song)
thank god people finnaly get me it not only the most underrated led zeppelin song its also the greatest.


[Newest]Only they can play for 10 1/2 minutes without it seeming to drag on and on and on and on and on and on and on. Nice references too.

2Ten Years Gone
My favourite piece of music by the greatest band of all time. This song is unbelievably touching, it can leave one literally in tears. Some of Jimmy page's best work in overdubbing, he used over TEN different guitar tracks in this song. The most essential piece of music on Physical Graffiti. This song will always hold a special place in my heart.
This is one of Zeppelin's most personal and emotional songs and it shows with its beautiful song writing and build up.


Give it a listen if you haven't already, and you will know for sure why this is their #1 underrated song.
[Newest]Very true it's really one of the best but not appreciated

3How Many More Times
The riff explains itself
Every live concert of this beautiful rock somphony is orchestrated in a diffrent unique way. Lyrics can't be more true as well
Unreal song. I'll never forget the first time
I heard it...

4When the Levee Breaks
The fact that it isn't #1 on every single list proves that it's underrated.


Based on a blues classic by Memphis Minnie, it should't be among their underrated songs. Just listen to the great intro, it knocks you over. To me one of their best tunes.
One of their best songs for sure, the drumline and guitar riffs are phenomenal. Best intro I've heard in a song personally.

5No Quarter
Brilliant riff, brilliant vocals with great dreamy effects, completely underrated
John Paul Jones at his finest, especially the Song Remains the Same version, with Jonesy's "Fantasy Sequence", as a keyboard/guitar player, I feel that this is a song that represents the culmination of Zeppelin's keyboard-led era.


The tool version is better.

6Four Sticks
Should definitely be up higher on the list. Awesome riff and great bass line. I bet you played this song for people and they could never tell you the name of it.
Unbelievably good song. Should be up there with Kashmir and Stairway
Great song, well they all are

7Bring It On Home
Love blues song with little country touch, and old days fame of harmonica use and of course not to forget bonham's awesome work.
It's worth to listen dude!
Great blues intro then Page's guitar riff blasts it away
Starts off slow and simple and then blows you away. And Jimmy's riff is amazing!


8Out On the Tiles
Syncopated and heavy, a beast of a hard rock song with a melodic chorus.

I really wonder why this didn't catch on... (? )
It should be more known. It's so joyfull and musically perfect, a great song by Led Zeppelin.

9The Rain Song
In my opinion this is the greatest acoustic song of all time and it has such a great strum pattern. Nobody could top Robert's lyrics on this one much different from "the way you squeeze my lemon. "
Close your eyes an listen to at least the first two minutes, if you don't mind. Despite its length of nine-ish minutes, I used to listen to this track every night for a fairly long time.


This song is simply amazing.

10The Ocean
Severely underrated. The riff is so powerful and gets you pumped up immediately.

The Contenders

11Going to California
Super relaxing and the mesh of calm guitars is beautiful. Like any other Led song the lyrics are enchanting! I couldn't believe this hadn't been added
I really don't think this song is underrated by Zep fans!

12Living Loving Maid
This one should be an all time classic! Epic riff!
Definitely. This is the song that got me into the band at a young age. I love it.
Great song but not underrated.

13Bron-Y-Aur Stomp
I'm very sure most of you have not even heard of this song. Please, I love it, I want you all to know it. If you do already know it, THANKS!
This song is what makes Zeppelin transcend genres... Awesome song that you can't help but stomp along to
A song dedicated to Robert's dog, Strider.
Aw, caught you smiling at me, that's the way it should be
Like a leaf is to a tree so fine

14What Is and What Should Never Be
One of their best

15Fool In the Rain
I didn't even know this was so underrated! I love this song so much, I though everyone who knew Led Zeppelin knew this song!

WELL, There's a light in your eye that keeps shining... Like a star that can't wait for the night... I hate to think I've been blinded, baby...
An INCREDIBLY underrated song. Sure it's not typical Led Zeppelin but that doesn't matter. Certainly the best song on In Through The Out Door.
Underrated maybe 10 or 15 years ago but in Orlando its one of the most played Zepp songs on the radio today (2013)

16All My Love
Do people say what the list says. Achilles Last Stand, No Quarter, and Kashmir? These are among the most popular of Zeppelin Songs.
This is not Led Zeppelin's BEST song, but it is quite underrated. Very deep lyrics. Plant wrote this after the loss of his son. The rest of the album may have been very good, but this is a very powerful Zep tune. Give it a listen, and you'll see that is does not get the praise it deserves!
This is a very beautiful and sad song. This song was written for Robert's late son, Karac, who died of a rare stomach virus on July 26, 1977 at the age of 5.

17Down By The Seaside
actually really good. SOO underrated its crazy. maybe because its not like other led zeppelin songs.
Musically great, with really nice themes, too. It really says a lot about society.

18The Lemon Song
I don't understand why this song is so underrated... The bassline in this song is so perfect it makes me jizz.. Not just the bass, but the guitar, vocals, and drums just so good..

19The Rover
Awesome dirty blues riff followed by a astonishing yet simple chorus (+ an incredible solo - goes without saying for any Zeppelin track)
This one should be in top 10. I guess this song is REALLY underrated laugh out loud
So it's even underrated in terms of an underrated songs, wow

20Trampled Under Foot
Trampled Under Foot is my 5th favourite Led Zeppelin song, severely underrated! It's just so catchy! Led Zeppelin making a funk song worked out WAY better than it should have!
This song always makes me smile! If you never heard Trampled Under Foot, you must have a really sad life
